Our NH Residential Dual Diagnosis Treatment Program
WestBridge opened The Commons in 2005 as it’s first residential program. A historic home in the heart of downtown Manchester, NH was redesigned to create a home-like space that welcomes participants into a comfortable atmosphere for treatment and recovery of co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders.
The residence accommodates 12 adult men, and features a spacious back yard, basketball court, and airy screened in porch. A full-time chef prepares healthy and delicious meals for our participants and provides instruction regarding nutrition and healthy eating.
Our utilization of evidence–based practices means we implement researched, proven care and treatment methods specific to helping men struggling with co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders.
These include Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Medication Management, Motivational Interviewing, Psychiatry, and more, all taking place in our modified therapeutic community settings.
The Commons provides structured days of recovery that include wellness-based gatherings and many other activities. Each resident regularly participates in individual, family, and group counseling. Participants are supported and learn to use community programs to aid in maintaining recovery.
Our caring professionals are on-site 24 hours per day, seven days per week to provide support, treatment intervention, encouragement, and monitoring.
The length of stay varies based on the individual. There is no maximum length of stay in any WestBridge program.

Transitioning into the Community
As participants make progress, we support them in becoming increasingly involved in community activities, including work, school, and volunteering. We also design an individualized transition plan with each participant that includes ongoing support from our Assertive Community Treatment team and gradual movement towards an independence residence.
Dual Diagnosis Outpatient Services for Men
In addition to the residential services offered, WestBridge has an extensive outpatient program in Manchester, NH. These services are through a program we refer to here at WestBridge as Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) and are designed to help adult men with co-occurring disorders thrive in their community. Our ACT program is comprised of a multi-disciplinary team of Care Managers, Psychiatrists, Nurses, Vocational Specialists, and Mentors and our team approach provides flexible, ongoing, and comprehensive support to men and their families.
The Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) model has been extensively researched. Studies have shown that ACT services are very effective for people who have frequent episodes of severe symptoms that are difficult to manage or symptoms that never go away. ACT teams help reduce the number of hospital stays and increase ones ability to remain active in their community.
